Colleges and universities today educate a large, diverse population of students, foster scholarship in new areas, and offer opportunities in new settings and formats, including online. Yet many facets of higher education have remained relatively untouched, sometimes to our detriment. To meet 21st century needs, leaders inside and outside of higher education recognized that our missions and practices need reinvigoration. Perhaps consensus can be reached about new expectations for students, the curricula, and given its infusion into society, technology. This plenary session will engage the audience in dialogue about how we can help reinvigorate higher education.
